Pint of Science Collaboration - Foundation Art and Design Students from CSVPA

Students from the Foundation Art and Design course at CSVPA have work on pieces for Creative Reactions / Pint of Science producing some great outcomes.

Creative Reactions has served as valuable live project experience for the students and the work has been pivotal with in their portfolios and university progression.

The bottle visualises the expanding universe after the big bang and the four pie charts illustrate the percentages of substances in four periods of the universe. 

I created them with confectionery and photographed them in a studio before using digital techniques to lay them out.

I was inspired by jars filled with colourful confectionery in a sweet shop in Cambridge, and these seemed to be the universe. 

The work is related to the theme ‘Atoms to Galaxies’.

This is a 3D work I created by layering cardboard and foam board. My work is about a distant galaxy. I wanted to show how distant galaxies are actually more luminous than neighbouring galaxies.

The work developed over several weeks and the final piece is designed to be viewed from multiple angles.

Each circle demonstrates different planets, the top is the Sun, followed by Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. For each planet I used distinct materials, such as, drypoint printing, mono printing, woodcuts print and watercolour. This concept came from the appearance of atoms and the solar system, they can look really similar and has given me ideas for further developments.

My final piece for this project was influenced by the Sun and Moon, Two largest celestial bodies we see from earth.

After a lot of experimentation I used liquid resin and acrylic inks to create a translucent nebular that can be back lit to enhance its visual effect.

I used a mixture of traditional and digital techniques to create an image that I feel conveys the ideas of the relationship between atoms and galaxies.

After the research I became interested in the relationship between galaxies and atoms, essentially because atoms are the smallest unit of matter that defines the chemical elements. Every child, liquid, gas and plasma is made up of neutral or ionised atoms. Paper cut and Photoshop are combined to create a effective piece of illustration.

 In my final piece I chose to do an info graphic on an experiment, “Self Tickle Versus Robot Tickle by Sarah-J. Blakemore, Chris D. Frith and Daniel M. Wolpert. I took photos of ink merging in water and also discarded metals. I used these photos to build a bar chart. I chose to take photo with ink because I think it represents human’s emotion, tickle feels like a small explosion on our skin and metal represents the robot, because it stands for something manufactured by human.

I created a photographic image that also contains a illustrative element which depicts the relationship between the nerve system and movement.

The idea was inspired by the description of a robot moving a glass of water in DR Daniel Wolpert’s Ted Talk.

Alongside photography I used digital programs to manipulate images, experimenting with transparency and over laying my own illustrations.
